Advice for Preventing Periodontal Disease

Diagram of two teeth, one healthy tooth and one with periodontal decay at Beyond Dental and Implant Center When it comes to dental care, everything about dentistry is about preventative health. Preventing disease is significantly less expensive and less stressful than fixing a problem that has already started. This is definitely true for periodontal disease. This is an oral disease that can cause significant medical and dental problems over time along with causing both the patient and the healthcare industry significant financial distress. While regular brushing and flossing are effective at preventing cavities, they only prevent dental problems above and a few millimeters below the gum tissue. There are several valuable pieces of advice that every person should consider when preventing this disease.

Wash Your Mouth

First, for people who can’t brush their teeth after each meal, washing the mouth with water after a meal will prevent a significant amount of bacterial growth. Most people brush their teeth after breakfast and dinner, but most people are stuck at work during lunch and do not bring a toothbrush to work. This means that lunchtime bacteria have time to grow and accumulate by feasting off of the food that is left over in the mouth after lunch. Try to rinse the mouth out with water after each meal to remove some of these extra food crumbs and prevent bacterial growth that can cause oral disease.

Maintain a Healthy Diet

Next, try to maintain a diet full of healthy foods. While even children know to avoid sugary snacks and drinks to stave off cavities and other dental problems, eating grains, fruits, and vegetables is just as important. These are foods packed with valuable nutritional ingredients that maintain the body’s immune system. A healthy immune system is required to fight off deadly bacterial and viral invaders. These include the ones that can cause oral disease. Try to maintain a diet with plenty of healthy foods to keep the body’s immune system functioning at a high level.

Maintain Regular Dental Visits

Finally, make sure to maintain regular dental visits. Brushing, flossing, and rinsing are only so effective at preventing periodontal disease. it takes a team of highly trained dental professionals to truly prevent chronic dental conditions. Dentists can remove plaque and tartar that solidifies in the mouth over time. These problems can cause tooth loss from receding gum tissue. It is important for patients to remember to schedule visits to a professional dentist at least two times each year for deep cleaning and x-rays to examine areas beneath the gum and tooth surface.
